He's still going, but in my experience has been slow to reply, often not replying until chased several times - I've got a Buco J21 on order (paid mid-March); there were delays in leather getting delivered, and was told 22nd May that my jacket was about to be made "the coming weekend" - had an email last week saying it "would be made soon".
Just as an update, Dave did let me know 3 weeks ago that he has had a bereavement, and understandably has been otherwise occupied; he did say he “will be getting back to things soon”, but I do not know when that will be.
Hopefully this is informative for those of you who are waiting to hear back from him.
It's easy to get over anxious when you think 'your World' is impacted by an unanswered email or two. I got praised for patience with Jerome. I thought of it as empathy and compassion for what he was going through with his Dad. I just contemplated what it would be like if I was facing the same circumstances.
Look forward to seeing DD back in action.... when he is ready.
